As part of the recent International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) in San Francisco, CA, Kitware sponsored the Best Student Paper awards. This year the top three awards went to Emily Dennis from the University of California, Los Angeles; Junhong Min from KAIST, Korea/EPEL, Switzerland; and Nikhil Singh from the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute at the University of Utah.
The Best Student Paper awards are determined by a selection committee review of the top seven paper submissions to the conference. Out of this year’s 79 submissions, the committee determined the finalists based on paper originality, quality, and student contribution. Finalists then presented either a poster or oral presentation at the conference and then the three winners were selected.
Emily Dennis, a graduate student researcher at the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at UCLA, won for the paper “Development of the “Rich Club” in Brain Connectivity Networks from 438 Adolescents & Adults aged 12-30,” which was co-authored with Neda Jahanshad, Arthur Toga, Katie McMahon, Greig de Zubicaray, Ian Hickie, Maragaret Wright, and Paul Thompson .
Junhong Min, a Ph.D. student studying optical microscopy in the Bio Imaging Signal Processing Lab at KAIST, was chosen for the paper “Continuous-Space Localization Using Sparsity Constraints for High-Density Super-Resolution Microscopy.” The paper was co-authored by Cédric Vonesch, Nicolas Olivier, Hagai Kirshner, Suliana Manley, Jong Chul Ye, and Michael Unser.
Nikhil Singh, a Ph.D. student studying statistical shape analysis at SCI, was selected for the paper “A Vector Momenta Formulation of Diffeomorphisms for Improved Geodesic Regression and Atlas Construction,” which was co-authored by Jacob Hinkle, Sarang Joshi, and P. Thomas Fletcher.
Congratulations to each of the Best Student Paper winners!
